This is pretty cool –

“By using a Google Streetview-like camera, a system with six lenses, not as a photo but as a video camera, an all-encompassing picture is captured. [...] From the point where the images were recorded, the viewer can look in any direction, let his eyes wander through the crowd, or stare at the ground or the air, which makes viewing a video an experience without boundaries.” – Yellow Bird press release



Using a feed reader and can’t see the video above?

Ever wondered what it’s like to be trapped in a crowd of 600,000 Dutch clubbers? Now you know… Oh, and did you notice the bonus pole dancer?

Thanks to @delarge for the link.
